Despite concerted efforts to increase the uptake of this intervention in many areas uptake remains poor.
This study provided further resolution of the population structure and evolution of P. vivax, especially in temperate/warm-temperate endemic areas of Asia.
Here, we use a comprehensive data assembly of HbS allele frequencies to generate the first evidence-based map of the worldwide distribution of the gene in a Bayesian geostatistical framework.
Currently, there are no reliable RBC invasion assays to guide the discovery of vaccines against Plasmodium vivax, the most prevalent malaria parasite in Asia and South America.
There are relatively few data on mixed infection rates in mosquitoes from Africa.
The proportion of malaria-related publications out of the overall biomedical output from the 11 target Asian-Pacific countries is decreasing.
Our data highlight the need for educational actions in Italy about malaria prophylaxis among immigrants. Larger epidemiological investigations are needed at this regard.
Spatial data for these factors were assembled for all malaria-endemic countries and combined to provide an objective, relative ranking of countries by technical, operational, and combined elimination feasibility.
DHA/PQP was a highly efficacious drug for P. falciparum malaria in areas where multidrug parasites are prevalent. The DHA/PQP combination can play an important role in the first-line treatment of uncomplicated falciparum malaria.
Here we report the identification and molecular characterization of the Anopheles stephensi odorant-binding protein 1 gene (AsteObp1), an Obp1 gene in An. stephensi, a major malaria vector in Asia.
